Yesterday, we went to Publix, where they double manufacture coupons up to 50 cents. Saturday evening I browsed the web sites for coupons and compared the coupons to what was on sale and made my list. The result was that we saved more than we spent, which is the goal anytime we go to Publix. Here is the main website: southernsavers.com, and to get to the Publix pages, hover over "grocery stores" (next to the magnolia) and choose Publix (or any other store you want--Aldi is listed, and she puts up the items on sale there, but you can't use coupons. Walmart and/or Target are rumored to price-match Aldi prices, so I think that's why she lists the Aldi ads.).
The next post had free chicken when you buy three items, three of which we needed and I had coupons for. Score free chicken! I also found a buy one get one with a coupon to print off.
So here is my receipt of the items we bought (the milk and Texas Toast were on sale):
and free seafood.
The toast didn't multiply, I think, because I printed it out and the Tide was from the newspaper.
Final tally: Paid 21.56 (really only 18.42 because of tax) and saved 23.41. The special price savings is what I saved from shopping the sales (chicken, milk, and toast). And then a penny shy of $13 in coupons!
